The last few weeks haven’t been much fun. I missed out on FINCON11 because I was stuck working. In fact, it seems like I’ve been living in the office due to the long hours and weekends filing tax returns for businesses and individuals who are too disorganized or lazy to get their taxes done on time. But, that pain was alleviated on Thursday night when the first game of the new NHL season took place. Of course, I still have quite a bit of work left to do this week, but at least I know I have something to relax with when I get home each night!
